The Pledge 1%

Posted on October 8, 2015

Devika has joined The Pledge 1%, a movement dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business. The Pledge 1% encourages and challenges individuals and companies to commit 1% of equity, product, and employee time towards their communities.

We want to better the world by inspiring early-stage corporate philanthropy. Pledge 1% is an easy way to leverage a portion of your future success to support nonprofits in your local region.


Devika Makes Pledge 1%

Our Devika CEO and Founder, Ken Kencevski made the pledge at the 2015 San Francisco TechCrunch Disrupt. The Devika team support a range of programs, partners, and initiatives that strive to positively impact people, on both local and international levels. For that reason, we would like to advance meaningful business advocacy by executing and promoting how to create a culture of giving through resources, case studies, and best practices.


How to be Involved

The Pledge 1% website enables visitors to commit equity, employee time and/or product directly, making it more accessible to be part of. Its aim is to facilitate the easy implementation of an equity pledge, connect companies with local resources to empower employee engagement programs, and help companies to further define and respond to community needs. For a small commitment today, you can make a huge impact tomorrow. The sooner you start, the easier it is... So join your fellow founders by making a pledge!
